Ammo Counter – 5 years of Success

Over the years I have taken pride in my ammo counter kit.  As far as I know, it is the cheapest ammo counter kit available.  I achieve my low price by my minimalistic design and versatility through programming.  Just 6 parts and custom programmed to meet your needs!

The ammo counter kit is my longest selling kit and as the 5 year anniversary is coming up, I wanted to go through my records and count just how many.  I came up with the number of ~185 ammo counters sold since I first made them available in 2009.

Year Sold
2014 25
2013 100
2012 25
2010 25
2009 10

Numbers are based on my part orders of the attiny microcontroller from my suppliers.  The ammo counter uses the attiny2313/4313 family microcontroller.

The original ammo counter went on sale in 2009, and was actually only my 3rd prop circuit I had designed.  The first two were my Proton Pack and my Energy Sword circuits.

I continued selling ammo counters and other prop electronic kits on commission until 2011, when I focused on perfecting my cortana kits, and perfect them I did. This is the kit I offered for the 2012 season.

After revamping my store website and resuming automated orders, demand remained steady for my ammo counters, but you can see that spike in ’13. Wow, what a year !  Thanks for the traffic guys, 405th.com, soaringhammer (closed), and therpf forums.
I would also like to extend a special thanks to some of the prop makers that use my kits in their props.
